06/11/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Summer is almost here and what better way to celebrate than by taking a break to visit Sydney…the dog! Who needs some fancy Opera House when you’ve got these beautifully sculpted ears? Sun, sand and surf? We have those right here in NYC and Sydney would love to enjoy them with you! He may be heartbreakingly emaciated but this good boy isn’t about to let that get in the way of living life to the full and after a slightly shy start he’s happy to show off his ‘come’ and ‘sit’,for treats of course, and to snuggle up on my lap where I can smooch him to my heart’s content. Given his condition it’s no surprise that food is Syd’s number one focus right now and the urge to feed him treat after treat is hard to resist, especially when he’s such a gentleman about waiting for them. But he needs to stick to a small yet frequent feeding schedule so after snuggle time we head away from the temptation of the treat bag and into the street for a leisurely stroll around the ‘hood where he meets dogs of all shapes and sizes with calm, friendly interest and takes care of his business along the way. Syd’s such a good boy that his only moment of protest comes as he digs in his heels and gives me his best pleading but-I-want-to-stay-with-YOU look when it’s time to return to his kennel. Clearly he’s no stranger to the life of a pet and once he knows for sure there will always be another bowl of food waiting for him, I predict you’ll be seeing a more relaxed, carefree Sydney in no time flat. Handsome, smart, affectionate and dog-friendly…what more could you ask for? Make this summer extra special by coming in to our Manhattan Care Center and booking a lifetime’s worth of Sydney ‘staycations’ today! A volunteer writes:I admit to being obsessed with the sweetness that is Sydney. Great on leash, likely housetrained, he walks with an elegance and style indicative of former days when he was well fed and part of a family. He’s too thin now so we’re feeding him an extra meal daily to help him gain weight. His playful, fun, calm, gentle and affectionate personality come through loud and clear. He loves playing ball, doesn’t guard it, and loves sitting between my legs for some petting. His gentle face speaks volumes about what’s in his heart and he’s waiting for you to discover him.
